Ive always been a fan of the trans ams and thought everyone thought the same way but i was recently at an f-body show and a guy had a formula and he said he hated the T/A because of the spoiler and he especially hated the ws6 hood. Just wondering how many people prefer the formula over the T/A.

i chose the 87 formula i had over a trans am. The fact that it looks like a 6 cylinder but has the balls and handling of the V-8 is awesome. Its a factory sleeper, like an LX fox body 5.0 used to be.

Formy's look good under the right conditions, but they have to have a hood or something to differentiate them from the base Firebirds.

My thoughts exactly.

My buddy has a 99 Formy with a Firehawk hood. He just built a H/C N2O LS2 to go in there. That car is sick.

I always thought the formy would be a tad quickr because its lighter but you can never find road tests for them. Its always the T/A

I would go for the TA...I have just always like the look a little better over a Formula...

Whenever I think of a V8 Firebird I picture the TA (especially 2nd and 4th gens)...The Formula looks great but its kind of like Darth Vader without the cape...just doesn't work for me...

formulas are great. i always have liked sleeper cars. however i think that the formula looks wrong for some reason stock. i think the absoutely best looking firebird i ever saw had a V6 front end, a T/A hatch, and a WS6 hood. wicked. if i had thought about it, i might of gotten a formula and done it.

I've always liked the TA's, but I'm more of a sleeper man myself (Makes it easier to get Hondas and such to race me). I own a formula and I'll always be a formula man. Formula :poke: TA.
